You know how people say you should “do something that your future self will thank you for”? A WPI education provides all the skills, experiences, and support you need to do just that. From expert career services to starting salaries 38% higher than the national average—get ready for your future self to thank you four years from now.
The WPI factor
Tech giants and hot start-ups, Fortune 500 companies and global nonprofits—when you get right down to it, they all want the same thing: intellect matched by character, creativity matched by pragmatism. Someone who is ready to do from day one.
That unique combination of expertise, collaboration, and real-world experience is exactly why employers and graduate schools are eager for WPI interns, co-op students, and graduates. They’re also determined to welcome more of them. It’s also why over 400 employers actively recruit on campus every year, and The Princeton Review recently ranked WPI #6 in the nation for Best Career Placement.
Success in more ways than one
We’re all about impact at WPI, and we’re proud of what our students, faculty, and alumni have contributed to communities around the world. Their efforts aren’t going unnoticed, either: WPI graduates earn starting salaries 38% higher than the national average.
The Career Development Center is an invaluable resource, not just during your time on campus, but whenever you’re looking for a new job, career, or polishing up your resume.
After all, once a part of the WPI community … always a part of the WPI community.

Drag to navigate
Meet your future employer
More than 450 corporate partners recruit on campus each year. From career fairs to networking nights and on-campus interviews, you’ll have many opportunities to meet and talk face-to-face with potential employers.
Attend one or both of our major annual career fairs to meet and network with hundreds of employers to learn more about jobs and companies that interest you. We’ll even help you with tips on what to wear and how to highlight our strengths.
Discover opportunities while building your resume.
Many students graduate with at least one internship or co-op experience, giving them the chance to strengthen their resume, make connections, and test out possible career paths. As a result, graduates hit the ground running, ready to make their mark.
Hundreds of co-op opportunities are available each year, giving students the opportunity to earn extra income to offset educational expenses—all while graduating in four years.
Our formula for success.
Your return on investment isn’t something to start thinking about when you graduate. It’s an important part of the college selection process.
More than 95% of graduates are in jobs or attending top graduate schools within several months of leaving WPI. This success measure is enhanced by our exhaustive data collection—we know where 90% of our graduates land.
